This is how it would ensure decent working conditions, environmental protection and fair wages in textile production. In coming year, members will have to publicly account for ir successes or failures in implementation of action plans.

The alliance was founded at end of 2014 in response to fatal accidents in textile factories in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Initially, few companies had shown interest in membership. It was only after development Ministry had revised conditions that large companies joined.

In meantime, alliance is owned by fashion companies, trade chains, associations, government agencies and charities. Toger y stand for just under 50 percent of German textile market. The textile alliance includes textile retailers such as C A, H M, Kik and Primark, as well as food retailers such as Aldi and Edeka, as well as textile manufacturers such as Esprit and Gerry Weber.
